Mayor Ethan Berkowitz has decreed no dancing and no live music in Anchorage due to the coronavirus. The decree began Sept. 3, and there’s no particular end dates in sight. Bar patrons also cannot stand at a bar; patrons must be seated — six feet apart. But some residents aren’t taking that to heart. In fact, they’re dong a dance rebellion.
The flash dance mob will gather at the Loussac Library, at 3600 Denali Street on Sept. 15 at 5:15 pm, and will do the Cha-Cha and the Boot Scootin’ Boogie. The Assembly’s regular meeting will start at 5:15 pm.
Berkowitz has set down various laws over the past six months, which some say have crushed the business sector, while he attempts to tamp down the spread of the highly contagious COVID-19 virus.
